I've never owned one. Always wanted one just to try it. Used to have a twin keel 5'10 south point epoxy... had some great sessions on it, but only on the forehand.... I suck on my backhand and the board didn't help any. Is there a big difference between a keel and a quad fish? I used to druel over the firewire fish many moons ago, never could find one second hand when i had the cash available.
I tried the twin keel thing for a while. Magic in the right waves, but really quite limited.

Solution - Pulled in tail, double flyer, quad fish. Curvier outline, more rocker, belly concave to vee. A blend of old and new. Best board ever for 1-5 foot waves.
Sounds just like a Pavel Speed Dialler
Yeah more or less, but it's a curvier, more rockered version. Retro meets modern so to speak.

I used to have that board, though the older version with the quad only option. Was a stack of fun in summer waves. Didn't care for it too much in overhead surf or anything too hollow or ledgy/abrupt. Good board for weaker softer peaky wind-swells.

Yeh, agreed generally best in that, I've surfed in 4/5 and it was fine but felt a tiny bit like a small wave board in juicer waves but if it's all you had I reckon it would be ok. He has pulled the nose in and given more the board more lift lately. But agree as rode mine late arvo in wind affected 3ft rising S not the strongest swell and it liked it.

If it was a 5 finned I'd have messaged him within minutes of it being posted the other day.

650's about right i reckon, especially with malcolm in town. I checked with Juan, you can get a clear newie for $930

He's asking too much - $650 for sure. I love the 3 fins variety of bonzer - plenty loose, but amazing drive.

It's a 3 fin?. My days of snap and slash are gone so 3 fin sounds great. Just need some spare cash and a stronger knee:)

Yeah I'm not against width, my good wave board is 19" wide and my step up is 19.5", but 20.5 is a fair bit for a 6'4".
I would've gone up a bit in thickness if I needed more foam, but I'm normal sized so I don't know what works best for heavier dudes, hence the ?

Yeah look, maybe it is a tad wide upon thinking about it but thats what Juan reckoned , I have a 6'7 which is 20.5 wide and thats fine.

All my boards now are at least 20.5 wide so it makes transitioning a bit easier... Maybe I should talk about maybe increasing he thickness a touch a dropping the width a little..

Edit - just got in there in time and changed it to 6'4 x 20 1/4 x 2 5/8. If this doesnt work you owe me $1000 Boo.

Was a genuine question loof, not in a position to be casting aspersions.
And I have heard that bonzers do a better job of controlling wide tails.
Hope it does work.

Yeah, I know mate. All cool.

Am sure it will... plenty of foam in a well made/designed board. My level of surfing - early entry and confidence is pretty key to surfing a wave well . I am never going to be hacking big gouges out the lip so just need to have some good momentum and put some nice fluid lines together and draw the energy out the wave and be in its sweet spot.
